Something blue has been a long-standing tradition in the wedding world, but we're taking a modern twist on it. We're currently lusting after cool slate blue hues for your wedding décor, flowers, and even your dress!

If you're tired of drowning in a sea of white and ivory gowns, then why not branch out to blue? This is the perfect shade as it's not too daring, but it still the right amount of colour to be a little different. If you're a fan of this style, incorporating lace and tulle, Emily Riggs Bridal is your best bet!

We suggest stepping away from structured bouquets and opting for a more loose, wild style. Use plenty of foliage like eucalyptus and accessorise with a slate blue velvet ribbon to keep in theme.

We love this hue for your bridesmaids' dresses, too. It's a flattering shade that will suit almost every skin tone. Now all your gals can be your something blue - cute!

Not a fan of all your 'maids in the one colour? No problem, vary the style and shades for a mismatched bridal party squad!

Is this not the ceremony space of dreams? We think so, anyway! This would be super easy to do yourself, too - all you'll need is some linen in slate blue and get your florist to work their magic.

Grab yourself a couple of those linen cloths and dress your tables with the same as your backdrop. We love how this couple used copper elements to complement the slate blue, perfectly!

So sweet and simple - take a plain wedding cake, add a ribbon (or a tear off your linen) and you have a beautiful, elegant cake.

Not forgetting your wedding stationery, the white and slate blue looks super elegant. Your invites are the first taste your guests will have of your wedding, so you want to make sure they're perfect.
